Ogden Canyon Waterline Project Alert

Ogden Canyon Waterline Project Alert:

We wanted to take an opportunity to correct a few misprints in the article titled,  “Water shut-off planned in canyon,” in this morning’s issue of the Ogden Standard Examiner.

·         SR-39 in Ogden Canyon will be temporarily closed to all traffic – including local traffic – beginning at 8:00pm Tuesday, March 5.  The canyon will remain closed until 5:00AM on Wednesday, March 6.
·         The second closure will occur Wednesday, March 6, with the usual closure beginning at 8:00pm, and a hard closure (closed to all traffic, including local traffic) from 10:00pm Wednesday night, to 5:00am on Thursday, March 7.
·         Between 4:00pm on Wednesday, March 6, and 8:00pm on Thursday, March 7, water will be shut off to ALL CANYON RESIDENTS.
·         During the 28-hour water shutoff, the main line will be drained and the second mile section of pipe will be isolated for replacement.  Residents in the construction zone of the second phase (which is approximately between Fairmount bridge and the Alaskan Inn) will be placed on temporary water for the duration of the second phase of construction.  However, this temporary water will not be available to residents until the water line is filled at 8:00pm on Thursday.
·         Canyon residents will not have access to potable water at the Ogden City Water Treatment facility or at other locations throughout the canyon.  Canyon residents should plan accordingly to ensure that their water needs are met during the 28-hour water shutoff.
